    I liked your idea about an albergue availability/booking app and was pretty surprised at how unreceptive some folks were. In my experience most members of this forum are not like that. Every branch of life needs to stay receptive to new ideas...

    Since I’ve yet to do my first Camino (now planned for 2023, was all set for spring 2020 😢) this forum keeps me current by members who know a great deal from past experience and also for staying up to date during the pandemic. If a thread goes...

    @Mel C I get it. For what it's worth, my observation is that it's often the same people responding in rude or hurtful ways - even if that is not their intention. I have walked a few caminos so happy to be helpful if I can. I'll send you my...

    Sorry that the forum wasn't a good fit for you. The forum was invaluable to me when I was planning my first Camino but you do need to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff, and let perceived negative comments roll off your back.

    IMHO there’s vastly more good than bad on here - compared to vast swathes of the internet this forum operates with almost archaic civility. My view is almost diametrically opposed to yours - I’ve considered calling it a day previously because of...

    Thx... I enjoyed reading your account of the Primitivo (and your own experience at Cornellana too), even if it now makes my hiking booted feet more restless. Still my favourite Camino after 3 times and writing this brought back lots of memories...
